Checked into the hotel with no problems. Once we got to the room, it was not completely clean. It looked as if they started to clean it but then went off and forgot about it. Went to the front desk to complain, the clerk looked at me like I was crazy because her little card said the room was clean. Well, once she sent someone to check it, she realized that it was indeed unclean. While I was waiting, another new guest came in with the same problem. She was met with the same blank stare that she was crazy because her little room card said the room was clean. After waiting for the employees to go back and check the rooms, we were given another room to stay in. When we got into the new room, it smelled like Vick's vapor rub really strongly. There was rust on top of the mini fridge and there was mold on the back of the bathroom door. Being the General Manager of my own hotel I can see where some of the problems can occur. But at the same time, the method in which the issues were addressed and the condition of the rooms could have been prevented with a little training as well as pride in the hotel itself. Outside of those listed areas of concern, the room was very comfortable during our stay.

Where do i begin! I paid over 300. for a 2 night stay. when you open the door you a greeted with the most horrible mildew smell. The floors where damp for some unknown reason. The bathroom door had blood on it from the person before us. They didn't clean the mirrors if they did it was with hair gel. The new friends you will make at this place have many legs that you will have to spray or keep your shoe handy to kill the roaches. If there would have been any other place to stay I would have gladly let them keep my money and left to another hotel, motel or condo. Do not stay here the health department needs to be called to this place and shut down.

Room Tip: run! don't stay here

Looking for a weekend room last minute there wasn't alot of availability so we settled for this place. Needed 2 nts. & only booked one to check it out & ended up staying the 2nd nt. I was quite hesitant & did not get a good & clean feeling entering the grounds & then the room. It really isn't bad. It needs some updating but it was clean & that's most important.
A bit smelly with a loud AC but the price is right & not too far out of the way.

This hotel was recently remodeled. the parking lot was a little dirty looking. The beds were amazing. The wifi worked great for me. I thought the price was a little bit high, but it was a holiday weekend. It was close to everything.

Friendly staff and the housekeeping was good. They even gave us extra towels for the people we had in the room. The a/c works great and the bed was comfortable.
Small pool but it was empty during the workweek.

Little high priced when your getting 2 rooms with 2 queen size beds. You'd think they would give you alittle break. Especially since one of the rooms had a hole in the wall which wasn't repair properly.
